Sorry for the long delay between updates, but this has been a very busy time for the Circles Committee so here is quite a big update.
The headline points are:
- We have managed to secure funding.
- We have appointed a manager.
- Branded crockery was ordered and has now arrived.
- Final items are being ordered.
Updated we had the wrong date!
We had a grant proposal to go to the Great Ashby Community Council, unfortunately the agenda for this weeks meeting (tonight) had already been published, so our grant proposal will now have to go to next months meeting on January 10th.
This probably won’t affect our opening date, as we still have other funding avenues we need to investigate.
With the extension to the Community Centre now completed, people are naturally, and increasingly, asking when the coffee bar is going to open. Work to alter the original small hall and turn it into the café area has been done. A community interest company (CIC), Circles Café Bar, has been set up to run and manage it.
So what’s the problem?
